What Could Be Thriftier Than Free??





In the absence of Nifty-Thrifty Thursday, I am doing something that should have been done long ago- giving something away!!!

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by a nice lady from a company and they wanted me to review a product for them and tell you all about it.

I received a package a few days later with 2 Glad SimplyCooking Microwave Steam Bags. They are bags meant specifically for, well, steaming food in the microwave!

After reading the instructions, I decided to make potatoes in the first bag. I seasoned the potatoes with dry onion soup mix and a little bit of vegetable oil. No liquid is required for the bags to do their magic. Just add your veggies to the bag, zip it closed and microwave away!

To my amazement, they worked VERY WELL!!! The potatoes were cooked very evenly and they were soft and juicy, but not mushy.
The second bag had to have a tougher test for me to be really impressed. I decided on eggs.

Now, if you've ever cooked eggs in the microwave, you've only done it once because if they didn't get totally ruined, they were as rubbery as a Goodyear tire.

The poeple at Glad have solved that problem with these steaming bags. I whisked 2 eggs with milk and added the mixture to the bag. I microwaved according to the directions and out came a soft, fluffy, HEAVENLY omelette! I topped it with cheese and all the clean up I had was throwing the bag away!!




Glad Microwave Steaming Bags are a great way to steam veggies for a healthy side dish or to make a quick breakfast. I liked them so much that I emailed back and asked for a box to give away to one lucky reader!!!
